I'm flying in from Norfolk, VA to IAD, which arrives at A2E, and my connecting flight is at the C gates to London, how do I get from the A gates to C gates?
The Aerotrain or the mobile lounge. Follow the signs.
Arriving on international flights after immigration and recheck of bag, we then have to clear security. Why is there no TSA pre-check offered at that checkpoint?
Because simply not enough people pass through that checkpoint to justify it and because there probably isn't room.
Arriving from Brussels (Belgium citizen) at 2:30pm on Sept 9 on United Airlines 951. The UA 560 flight to SFO leaves at 3:49 pm. Is a 1 hour & 19 min connection enough time for customs and baggage recheck-in?
Realistically that will be very difficult unless your flight from Brussels arrives early, but United has other flights to SFO you can likely be rebooked on.
How long does it normally take to get through immigration around 4pm on a Thursday?
Probably about 30-45 minutes.
Thanks!
Flying home to Dublin from Atlanta, is 40mins enough time to make my connection? Flying in United from Atlanta, Flying out to Dublin United as well.
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Atlanta is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My daughter is traveling from South Africa to Amsterdam and picking up a connecting flight to IAD (KLM/Delta). She then is to board an AA flight from IAD to LAX. She has approximately 1 1/4 hours between her arrival in IAD and the departure to LAX. Is that enough time? What is the procedure when she arrives at IAD with respect to customs and baggage transfer? Thanks
That is not enough time. In IAD she will be taken to the International arrivals building, go through US Immigration, and claim her bags, she then has to go to the departures level, re-check her bags with American and go through security and to her departure gate. She needs about another hour to make this connection at IAD.
Hi, we will be arriving in IAD with DELTA domestic flight and have connecting flight with AUSTRIAN AIRLINES to VIenna
That's a statement. Do you have a question?
Hi, I will be arriving from Munich with United Airlines at IAD at 3;15 P.M. . I have a connecting flight to CHS with United at 5:05 P,M. Is this enough time to clear customs ? Will I need to recheck my baggage for the flight to CHS ? THank you
That should be just enough time. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, through security and to your departure gate.

Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the mobile lounge or aerotrain.
Hi! I will arrive in IAD with a UNITED domestic flight from RDU. I will only have 1h55 to make my connecting international flight with Korean to Seoul. Since tickets were bought on different reservations, I will have to collect my bags at arrival and recheck them for the next flight. Can I make it?
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
